CBS 3) UPPER FREEHOLD TWP. New Jersey State Police have released two sketches in hopes of identifying the remains of a young girl found in Monmouth County in 2005.
A hunter discovered a skull and jawbone of the child while walking in Clayton Park on March 18, 2005.
Further examination of the scene uncovered a Nike Air Force One shoe and a piece of fabric, possibly from a book bag, with a picture of a Warner Brothers cartoon character.
One of the images released by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is a computer generated image based on a CATT scan of the childs skull. The second image released is a technical drawing done by a New Jersey state police sketch artist.
Detectives hope the difference between the images will give the public a useful range of looks.
Hopefully realizing these images, someone will come forward who knows her or who may have known her, but to somebody knows her so we hope someone will come forward, said Det. Sgt. Dawn Heltzman of the New Jersey State police.
DNA analysis shows the remains of the child might be that of a black female, who could have been five to nine years old.
We are committed and driven to find out who she is and find out exactly what happened to her, said Det. Heltzman.
Investigators believe the child died sometime between 2001 and 2004, but the cause of her death has not been determined.
Detectives do not believe the child was from the area where her body was found based on the analysis of her teeth.
She was from an area with fluorinated waters, and her remains were found in a well water area.
